another LO

Here is another layout that I did last week - used some basic grey paper from a selection that I purchased from the Q last year - I really like these photos of the kids.

NSSS package

Saturday I got my February package from my NSSS Sara57Marie from the Cricut MB. This month we exchanged a sticky recipe layout - hers was for Ginger Snaps and here is the beautiful card she made for me (it's well known in our little clique that I am really into owls lately).
Here are some of the goodies she sent me - some great owl paper and embellies along with some demensional stickers and goodies from her stash

And she sent me 3 of the Target mailboxes, some clear little stamps that I nagged her about picking up for me, some paper packs, adhesive and she filled out the package with some reading material!
